This year’s The Digital Space programme stretches its wings to take a broader view than ever before of the continually evolving world of hi-res digital animation. The programme still plays host to highly imaginative abstract digital animation, but these pieces sit beside films with clearer narrative structures. There are films obviously inspired by gaming animation, works adapted from other mediums and several works of digital art created for gallery spaces.
